Future Formulation 2

16 May 2018 10:00-17:30, Notttingham, United Kingdom

At Future Formulation 1 in Durham last year, the grant holders told us about their plans, during Future Formulation 2 the grant holders and their teams will update you on progress with presentations and poster, giving you the opportunity to learn about the latest formulation science and get involved.

The UK has in recent years recognised the massive contribution which formulation makes to its economic activity. Resources have been made available both through the setting up of CPI’s (Centre for Process Innovation) National Formulation Centre in County Durham and specific funding calls from EPSRC and Innovate UK. This meeting will bring together some of the people who will shape future formulation having been awarded grants under the EPSRC's "Future Formulation of Complex Products" call.
